Kuhn Rikon Animal-Print Knives Now on Woot


For sale today on Woot — the crazy website that offers one surprise item for sale each day, for one day only — Swiss Kuhn Rikon knives in animal-skin prints.

The three-piece set includes a six-inch chef’s knife, four-inch paring knife, and mini-cleaver, all for the bargain price of $14.99. The blades are made of Japanese high-carbon steel, and the animals available include leopard, giraffe, and zebra.

Would this make a great gift for your foodie friend or loved one — you bet! Supplies are limited, so go to Woot right now.

The knives come with sheaths, and the animal-skin coating is nonstick, making the knives easier to wash after you’ve butchered that wild boar or squirrel that you’ve just shot in your yard. Works equally well to carve a toasted cheese sandwich.

Especially good for those friends of yours who manage to always dress themselves in some animal-print something.
